28th June??

I knew it had been a long time since my last post but couldn't believe it when I came back and saw the date of my last post was June 28th! I seem to have missed the whole summer.
Of course I had lots of trips out with Millie during the school holidays. We went to Conkkers with Auntie Isabel, Drayton Manor with Mummy, Bluebell's Maize Maze, Make It! in Mansfield, Manor Farm Donkey Sanctuary, Rufford Country Park, Shipley Country Park and I'm sure there were others I have forgotten

Ah yes, a check in the photos reminded me of Cadbury World. Here is Millie, enjoying the playground.

We took Grandad to the Heights of Abraham in Matlock. This is reached by a cablecar and this is Millie in the exhibition of how it works.

It was the summer of the crystals when Millie started a collection so we took her to the National Stone Centre where she had a lovely if damp time panning for gems. It was terribly stressful though as she was traumatised at the thought of loosing any of the chips over the side of her pan!
